85 I think we should not wait for people to raise questions about this, or
86 it will be too late. When the announce of Mageia was done, I have seen
87 a lot of people comparing Mandriva/Mageia with RedHat/Fedora, although
88 the announcement was quite clear that it is not the same.
89
90 If we don't explain this clearly and don't insist on it, a lot of people
91 will immediately think it is the same as RedHat/Fedora, or that Mandriva
92 and Mageia will merge.
